Previous reviewer sums most of it up and is an accurate description but maybe there are one or two other points that could be mentioned, hence this review.
First of all - the hotel has a pool but it is closed during 'winter season'. This was not mentioned in any description that I read about this hotel prior to booking. The idea of the pool was one of the reasons i even booked the hotel. On top of this, there are a distinct lack of things to do in the hotel, cosidering the place is very far out. There should be at least a bar open during the daytime however, nope - it opens at 6pm and is OUTSIDE. It can get cold at night during the 'winter season' so it is not very comfortable to try and have a drink in this hotel. If you wanna buy some stuff, well the hotel shop hikes its prices up a lot.
Room OK but the hotel also refused to allow windows to be open in the room so the beach area is viewable but you cannot even get a hint of a sea breeze. That was poor service, in my opinion. There is a room laundry service, but the prices are quite simply, daylight robbery.
I would not stay here again, but as other reviewers have mentioned, it does have its good points that some people, such as families may find suitable.
On the plus side - the shuttle bus was a good thing that the hotel does provide and saved a bit of cash. For example it is 50 HKD to the nearest MTR in Tsen Wan, which is where the bus takes you to.
Worth a mention is that a taxi to airport from this place is 200 HKD.
